Hawthorne Speckle Hand Paint

$12.99 100g / hank

Take our ever-popular Hawthorne, the sturdy, vibrant superwash yarn you love, as a base, add some style and pizazz, and you get Hawthorne Speckle Hand Paint. Every Speckle skein is painted by hand with eccentric dapplings of color against the softest of backgrounds. Pair it with Hawthorne Multi or Kettle Dye for an eye-catching pop, or use it alone for a unique pair of socks or an everyday accessory that will bring a dazzle of color to any outfit.

Please note: Hawthorne is a hand painted yarn and colors may vary from skein to skein.

I knit a pair of color block socks with Confetti speckle (body) and Dandelion yellow from the Stroll line (cuff, toe and heel). I've been wearing the socks for over a year, and they have held up great! The Hawthorne yarn still looks brand new; the stroll looks a little fuzzy and worn. I would definitely use this yarn again.

Just completed socks with the Blueberry Speckle and Tie Dye. They both knit beautifully. After machine washing the Blueberry speckle looked beautiful and retained its color and shape. The tie dye looked faded and dull which was disappointing.

I love this yarn. I bought several skeins and I am pleased with the color of each one. I've knit socks with two different skeins and have washed and worn both. Even in the Florida heat, my feet were cool and comfortable. The cables are crisp and well defined. the yarn is soft but sturdy. I couldn't ask for more!

I can not understand the negative reviews. Color is bright and beautiful, stranding is strong and it washes well. You discontinued one of my favorite colors. Not the first, wont be the last. I know you need room for new Yarns. I become hooked on those also. Knit or crochet more and complain less. Knit picks offers Yarns you can no longer get in walk in stores.

I LOVE THIS YARN. Period. It's my favorite. I have no problem with the hand dye variations. Every single colorway I've tried has been artistically beautiful. This is NOT Stroll yarn. It is NOT fluffy butter-soft merino. It's also NOT painfully rough to work with either... AND IT SOFTENS WHEN YOU WASH IT. It's sturdy with a gorgeous twist... stunning stitch definition. Basically, if I'm going to spend time making wearables, they better hold up! This yarn is PERFECT. I will be devastated if they ever discontinue Hawthorne!
